      . . . . .

DISABLED - The schooner HAMILTON was brought to this port yesterday morninG by the tug WINSLOW in a disabled condition. She was bound to Chicago with a cargo of coal, and while on Lake Huron, suddenly sprung a leak and put into Presque Isle, where she was found by the WINSLOW. Steam pumps were placed on board of her which kept her free until her safe arrival here. She is an old vessel and doubtless will require considerable repairs. - Detroit Free Press.
